If this thread doesn't get Ronnie to do a little more Rewind posting .. I'll be taking suggestions next! [Big Grin]


“Aliens” is James Cameron’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s original 1979 movie “Alien” which was a cerebral experience that attempted to scare us with atmosphere and paranoia. Well.. that creature popping out of that dude's stomach might have freaked me a little. On the flipside, “Aliens” is poised to thrill us with serious SciFi-action fireworks.

"Aliens" brings back Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), the only human survivor from the first film, who has been frozen in cryo sleep for the last half century or so. Awaken into a new world she is ill-prepared for, Ripley is informed that the alien planet where the alien creature that terrorized her commercial vessel (in the first film) has since been colonized by humans. Oh, and it just so happens that said colony has coincidently gone off the radar and the colonists are believe to be in trouble.

 -

Ripley is asked to return to the alien planet as a guide to check up on the colonists. She is hesitant at first, but eventually agrees out of a need to resolve unfinished business. The bulk of the rescue crew consists of Marines, including Hicks the nice guy (Michael Biehn), Hudson the loudmouth (Bill Paxton), Vasquez the badtassh (Jenette Goldstein), Bishop the android (Lance Henriksen) and Gorman the inexperienced commander (William Hope).

When the crew lands on the planet it becomes apparent things have gone terribly wrong. In fact the colonists are either all dead or are being used in some horrible way by the aliens.

From this point on is when "Aliens" distinguishes itself as one of the best movies of the 80's!

 -

Each time I watch "Aliens", I'm even more impressed by Jenette Goldstein's wicked performance as Vasquez. Bill Paxton was playing an extended version of Chet from "Weird Science" in this flick with some of his lines being beyond funny.

"Maybe you haven't been keeping up with current events, but we just got our tasshes kicked pal!"

 -

The action and special effects are center in "Aliens", but Cameron did an outstanding job with the backstory on Ripley as well as adding in Carrie Henn as Newt.

 -


Outstanding sequel in my opinion..

What I appreciate about what they did with this movie today that I didn't appreciate back then was the way in which they made the main hero a quite capable woman character. Back then, you would have assumed this would have been a role for a man, but the performance and story were so effortless that you couldn't picture anyone other than Ellen Ripley clicking into that bulk loader at the end to go fight the queen alien and save Newt.

Totally bad***!

thanks, valley. very good review.

i agree with earl, about ripley.
i can say so much about this movie but in short, it's my favorite movie of all time.

it's one of those movies that i will watch everytime it's on cable, and know every word to. cheesy, i know but it's so true. and it's one of the first vhs tapes i ever owned. i got it for 10 bucks back in the 80s.
i have the 4 movie box set. the extras for ALIENS is out of sight!

and though ripley is one of my favorite characters ever...vasquez was also awesome as the other female bada**. [Big Grin]

Not meaning to go off topic but what do you guys thing about the Alien predator crossover theme? I kind of like it. Gives it a fresh story/plot line to go.

I liked the idea but the movies haven't quite lived up the potential. The first AVP was OK and the old SNES game entertaining in its own right but they've worn out the franchise somewhat.

Aliens is a modern classic, great from start to finish. And though I'm one of the few people who thought 'Alien: Ressurection' was very good, this is still the best of the lot.

I agree with Ronnie.. both are great franchises, but I never got into the versus movies.

btw Ronnie... can you believe that Vasquez is also Diamondback from "Near Dark"? I never connected thoses dots back in the 80's.

Seeing a brand new print of this film at the New Beverly Cinema is nothing short of amazing. I can't wait for this movie to be in Blu format at the end of this year.

Ronnie.. your favorite movie of all-time needs more input from you!  Unlike my fav that is often discussed, "Aliens" is not brought up that much so let's have some fun with it.   

So what I'm trying to say is.. give us more as to why you consider it #1 on your list!

I always liked Aliens and thought it was a great film with good characters and effects,but because i was young at the time i had never seen Alien so i think the 2nd film works well as a stand alone film.
Strange that although i am 36 now i have still never seen Alien.

Jenette Goldstein played Vasquez in the movie, and she was also in some other James Cameron-directed movies, Terminator 2, and Titanic.

She's had a pretty long and varied career! Check out her list of credits.

It's amazing how so many of the conventions Cameron would use in his movies ended up being cliches because so many other movies ripped them off.

I always thought part of why 'Aliens' worked as a sequel, is that it changed genre from 'Alien' - horror to thriller.

Just wanted to make sure that fans of the movie "Aliens" didn't miss this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly. James Cameron reunited with Carrie Henn, Michael Biehn, Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, and Lance Henriksen in LA for a reunion.

Cameron said:

"It was like getting the band back together.. we wanted to run off and make another Alien movie."

 -

Watched this movie last weekend after discussing it with Ronnie who cherishes this film. I own the Special Edition version, but now I'm interested in the Blu-ray boxset that J2ME nicely details above.

The EW article is only a couple of pages, but there are several memories and a great description of Ripley by Weaver. Also, it was a blast to find out that Paxton improvised some of those hilarious quotes we all know so well.

I recommend that everyone watch "Aliens" as soon as you can work it in.
